Marine Air MUST fix the MV-22 fast rope situation!
To the guys in the Wing, this isn't directed at you. To the grunts and others in the GCE, this isn't directed at you.
I'm aiming this directly at the Assistant Commandant for Aviation.
SIR THIS IS BULLSHIT!
How can you look at the above pic and think that that is ok? In order to fast rope from a MV-22 the first Marine out has to make a life defying leap and then once on the ground he lays on the rope and maybe the second guy down does too in order for the rest of the stick to make it down?
Workarounds are part of the job but you have to know when its time to say enough is enough. That is too much. Work needs to be done to do this better!
Fix this shit SIR!
